I worked at AlliedBarton full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Opportunities for advancement in the right places, relatively low qualifications for hiring (be 18/21 depending on the site, no outstanding criminal record), decent benefits package (at least, in theory) if you stay for a year or so

Cons

Work-life balance is a BIG problem - bigger if you get the wrong manager; client companies occasionally take advantage of the officers by requiring them to do extra tasks

    I have been working at AlliedBarton part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of time off. Get paid weekly.

    Cons

    Empty promises of more hours. Weak management. Will always side with the client without giving the employee a choice to give his side of a situation.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to the actions of lower management like site supervisors and operations managers.
